Trapped by Agenda - a sermon by Mike Mills
Last week Melinda sat down with Mike Mills (catch up here), who has worked faithfully as the State Executive Minister here at Baptist Churches SA for over ten years. This week Mike has shared a sermon that he preached in June 2019 at Edwardstown Baptist – Mike’s home church. The passage Mike is preaching on is the parable of the rich young fool in Luke 12, but this sermon takes a different angle as rather than focusing on the parable itself, it focuses on the encounter the man had with Jesus as he came to Jesus and asked for a resolution of a dispute.
